From Las Vegas Kitchens to Kansas City Confections
Kansas City native Christopher Elbow began his culinary career as a line cook in the Lincoln Country Club and worked in renowned kitchens such as Emeril Lagasse’s Delmonico Steakhouse and Jean Joso’s Eiffel Tower Restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip. But, it was while working as a pastry chef at The American restaurant in Kansas City that his chocolate-making career began.
In an interview with Gimme Some Oven, Elbow elaborates, “I first saw chocolate-making when I was living in Las Vegas. The pastry chef I worked with would make it, but never teach us. So I never had an opportunity to pursue it until I was the pastry chef at The American, where we would send out little chocolates as a dessert. I taught myself how to make it, and then customers started asking if I could make more.”
The rest is artisanal chocolate history. Christopher Elbow’s Kansas City chocolate shoppe and factory are like Willy Wonka for more refined, adult palettes, and have become synonymous with the Fountain City.
Partnership with CLOVR
CLOVR began manufacturing cannabis products in 2020. Missouri medical marijuana patients may recognize the name from seeing their vape pens, concentrates, and THC-infused beverages at dispensaries throughout the state. When they began manufacturing, they knew they wanted to make a high quality chocolate, and had hopes of partnering with the state’s most notable chocolatier.
In an interview with In Kansas City, Elbow says he was looking to partner with a cannabis company as well. Their attorneys made the introductions and he began the process of creating unique chocolate products designed specifically for medical marijuana patients. The Christopher Elbow-CLOVR partnership debuted their products at CLOVR’s Belton location at the start of the summer and have begun distributing the products to other locations throughout the state.
Where to find Christopher Elbow Cannabis Edibles
Christopher Elbow’s Kansas City storefront location is the home of his artisanal chocolates, but that’s NOT where you want to go if you’re looking for his new cannabis-infused treats. To get these treats, you’ll want to contact your local medical marijuana dispensary to check and see if they carry CLOVR products, and ask specifically for the Christopher Elbow chocolate edibles.
You Get What You Pay For
You can expect a higher price point for Christopher Elbow’s cannabis-infused chocolates. This is because you are not only getting the relief that medical marijuana provides, you are getting it delivered through a high-end, gourmet chocolate experience.
Elbow’s offerings include top shelf chocolate bars made of 72% Venezuelan chocolate and hard-shelled bon-bons in flavors such as salted vanilla caramel, citrus caramel, and Italian espresso. These are high end THC-infused chocolates with a name-brand price tag. Expect to pay more.
